Delivery options

We offer a range of options for the delivery and fitting of your Safe&Sound.

Before making your choice please watch our video on how easy it is to assemble a Safe&Sound in the FAQ page.

The heaviest piece is the plywood and foam floor at 30kg.

The entire range of Safe&Sound products have been designed to flat pack onto a standard Euro pallet 1m x 1.2m x 2m ht, Mini 135kg, Midi 150kg, Maxi 175kg. These pallets can be sent anywhere in the UK and most countries worldwide at very reasonable costs, £90 being typical for most of the UK.

If a delivery vehicle with a tail lift is required this can be arranged. Inside the wooden box designed to protect your Safe&Sound all the parts are packed in boxes and bags for easy unloading by hand.

We are aware that some people will not have the ability to take on the delivery of a pallet or the ability to assemble the product once it has arrived. If this is the case we will try and find a handyman in your area who will take delivery and then deliver and fit it into your home. Please contact us for help.

If you prefer, we can also deliver and install it for you, just give us your postcode and we will give you a quote.

Collect in person. If you want to collect your Safe&Sound just contact us with a day and time, we will even help you do a test assembly if required.

Please contact us ‘BEFORE DESPATCH’ if you think access for a 7.5ton box van would be a problem or if unloading a pallet is not possible.

Funding info

Obtaining funding in the current climate is no easy matter. The information below may help you obtain funding.

DFG or EQUIPMENT GRANT:

We have designed the Safe and Sound pods to fit into the two main categories of funding. All our pods are fitted with feet that can be left free standing making it fall into the equipment category, or alternatively they can be fixed to the floor making it fall into the adaptation DFG grant category.

CASE STUDY:

Need support for your meeting with the Panel? Sara Rodway OT was so impressed by the results she got after loaning two of our travels pod to twin autistic six year olds, that she wrote a case study to help her application for funding for two permanent versions. Good news is the panel were so impressed that they agreed to fund one (a first for that area). Sara has very kindly let us have a copy of this report to help others obtain funding. Please see the resource section below
